Australia’s flagship carrier Qantas Airways recently launched the newly designed pyjamas for its business class customers. This comes close on the heels of the updated flying kangaroo logo and livery by premier Aussie carrier.
Media reports said that the new pyjamas are in grey cotton, and in fact unisex long sleeved sleepwear. The pyjamas’ back of the neck has Qantas printed along with a navy blue Kangaroo logo embossed on it. The business class customers traveling on the airline’s long-haul international route will be offered the pyjamas.
Martin Grant, Australian designer who created the pyjamas, said, “The pyjamas will be in a more relaxed fit featuring a raglan-style top having a seam from the underarm to the collar bone and draw-string pant.”
According to the reports, Qantas Airways will be gradually rolling out the new-look pyjamas on its long-haul international routes such as Hawaii, San Francisco, Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles, London, Dubai, Vancouver, Shanghai, Johannesburg, Tokyo, Beijing, Hong Kong, Singapore and Santiago.
Phillip Capps, Qantas Airways’ Head of Customer Product and Service Development, said, “The overall customer experience will be enhanced and become enjoyable with the new business class sleepwear. The airline has long been deliberating on this and believed it to be vital for its future growth and customer satisfaction.”
Also, the latest trend in the commercial aviation industry indicated that the sleepwear have become a vital part of the inflight dress code. It has been observed that nearly 95 percent of the premium customers prefer to wear them on board their flights and also take along with them home after concluding their journey.
It may be noted that Qantas Airways had first introduced sleepwear on its long-haul international flights during the late 1990s. The airline had over the years also updated each design. From time to time the airline has also been making adjustments and tweaks and ensured that the sleepwear offered style as well as much required comfort, particularly when the duration of flights can be up to 15 hours.
